Super7 is harnessing the Sword of Omens for the sight beyond sight.
Thundercats were a staple of toy departments in the mid-1980s. Produced by LJN, the toy line and its companion animated series developed a large following, directly competing in a space dominated by Mattel’s He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (MOTU). While the toys never hit the same level of success that MOTU would enjoy, there was enough of a difference that Thundercats would thrive and stand on its own, maintaining fans in the decades that followed. With LJN having folded in 1995, the Thundercats license bounced around a bit, eventually passing through Bandai in 2011 and landing at Mattel. In 2016, the company released a small assortment of highly-detailed Thundercats Ultimates action figures through its since shuttered MattyCollector platform. Now, Super7 is relaunching the line.
In a similar situation to when Super7 took over Masters of the Universe Classics following the MattyCollector closure, the company is restarting Thundercats by releasing an initial wave of upgraded figures that were previously released by Mattel. The 7-inch scale Lion-O, Panthro, Jackalman, and Mumm-Ra (Mummy Form) are sculpted by the Four Horsemen, and will be offered with an assortment of additional accessories, and a secondary headsculpt that was not included in the 2016 Mattel release.
Each Ultimate Thundercats figure will be packaged in a collector-focused deluxe slip-case display box with its accessories. Preorders for the first wave are open now.
